December 1 Jason was in a very serious motor vehicle accident and was airlifted to the trauma centre in Newcastle, NSW.  Since then the medical team has been dealing with the numerous medical issues caused by the accident, starting with the most critical.  He will require numerous surgeries in the following weeks, a long stay in hospital and months of rehabilitation.  As the sole breadwinner, the family will need support for the physio, rehab and additional costs associated with Jason's  recovery.  At this point in time we can't estimate how long that process will take.
We thank all for their get well wishes and prayers and appreciate your support in this trying time.

Rae got an early birthday present as Jason was released as an outpatient and allowed to come home on Monday afternoon.
It was a family celebration with cheesecake and cordial. Children are having to learn to be gentle with Daddy and respect his rest time.
Jason will be up and down to the hospital and rehab as they work to optomize his recovery.
He is grateful to be back home, enjoying the quiet and the greenery all around him.

Another week with positive strides forward. The neck collar is now off, cleared to walk with crutches, now able to do chewing of soft foods. More xrays and doctor consultations with the result Jason will be coming home as an outpatient of the hospital and rehab centre with a target release to outpatient of Monday.
He will be heading back to Newcastle twice a week for some rehab, with physio and other rehab that is offered closer to home on other days. Still lots of work to be done but looking forward to him having more time with the family.
Thank you for your support and prayers through this process.

This last week has seen daily improvements as Jason is working hard on building his strength and healing. Tubes are all out, now drinking milkshakes, juices, etc and pureed foods (solids will have to wait until jaw is healed and wiring comes off). Doing short walks with a walker and allowed to go out of the room in a wheelchair so enjoyed trips to hospital food court and cafeteria as well as outdoors for some time in the sun. He is eager for physio with his sights set on working hard to recuperate in record time. Time is what it will take to work through the healing process and rehab for optimal recovery.
Now that he is able to communicate he enjoys visits though he does still need lots of rest to recharge for the next round of physio.
Jason sends his appreciation to all for their support and well wishes.

Another red letter day as the trachea tube came out and Jason was able to have his first few sips of water..."The best water ever" was Jason's view after over five weeks with no liquids passing his lips. His jaw is still wired but he is now able to talk and be better understood.
He is doing some physio (up and down from bed) and a few steps with a high walker with everyone pleased with his progress.
Thank you all for your continued support.
